Not long after claiming he was "going to prison", USA artist Tekashi69 (AKA Tekashi 6ix9ine) has reportedly been admitted to hospital after he was "pistol whipped, robbed and kidnapped".

The 22-year-old rainbow-maned performer - born Daniel Hernandez - was coming home a music video shoot around 4 a.m. when his vehicle was blocked in, according to TMZ. We're told when he got there another auto pulled up and blocked his driveway.

According to TMZ, sources claimed three hooded gunmen got out of their auto, grabbed Tekashi and knocked him unconscious. Once 6ix9ine regained consciousness, the men demanded money and jewelry or else they threatened to kill him.

After they found their way inside, the gunmen took around $750k worth of jewelry and around $20k in cash, the outlet reported. Tekashi's partner and daughter were inside the house but were not hurt.

The goons drove off with 6ix 9ine in the backseat, and, according to TMZ, the rapper was able to open the back door and jump out of the vehicle.
